Then maybe the trick is to try to enjoy school and work. Sounds horrible to some people. But me? If I'm getting paid to do something I like, I won't feel too bad. School on the other hand, is somewhat different. That's why I want to get out of school ASAP, preferably with a degree.

Instead of going through life pessimistic, I'm going to enjoy it as much as possible, no matter what the situation is. Being overly pessimistic is probably bad for your health anyways.

Sidenote: Why do you think I hate paying taxes? anomie just wrote a really good reason why.
